im so excited to have my friend alena do this feature! shes also the first girl!

Alena L., St. Louis, Missouri

tell me about the shirt!:
This is the men's 'Elvis' shirt.

why is it important to you?:
This is the first band shirt that I have bought in AT LEAST 8 years and I just wanted to support this band because I absolutely love them. Musically and especially lyrically. I love/relate to pretty much everything OWTH has done, but the album 'In Desolation' could have been written from my own head. As "depressing" as I've been told that is - to me it's not. Seeing/hearing this band live always makes me feel incredibly stoked and like I have no care in the fucking world -nothing else gives me that feeling.

where did you get it?:
I picked this shirt up when I saw them here at Pop's [across the river in IL technically].

any story you want to share about it?
The only story I really have about this shirt kind of ties into what I wrote above about why it's important. When I saw them here it was last minute & in the midst of a lot of personal chaos going on in my life. I didn't know OWTH was even playing here until the day of, when a friend sent me a text asking if I was going. Had this been any other band I would not have gone, no matter how much I wanted to, because I was physically ill and mentally had checked out. Literally 2 days prior to this I told my husband "I really need to see Off With Their Heads again" [because of whatever it is they stir up inside me] and then BAM they happened to be playing here and I would have missed it had it not been for my friend Matt.

I pushed through the physical sickness and mentally was just so happy they were playing I didn't care or think about anything else. I admit, I am normally a pretty insecure person and tend to not really "go all out" for bands but this night I lost my shit up front, singing along to every song, throwing my arms/hands in the air, was punching/pounding the shit out of the stage and not only did I not give a fuck about looking ridiculous, I also was just oblivious that anyone else was in that venue with me. I felt my age the next day though when I was bruised and my arms were sore as shit hahaha. It was a night I won't forget and I'm really thankful that this band is around.

this is off with their heads facebook

being red

well today since ive woken up my face has been extremely red and hot. the rest of me is fine so im so confused and weirded out. my mom may think im having an allergic reaction or stress.
today i called the doctors office FOUR TIMES. and still no one has called me back to tell me the results of my blood test, they told me they had to have the doctor call me and the people at the office couldnt tell me.
tomorrow morning im going to call ONCE and if no one can tell me im going to the office and demanding someone tell me.

i had a super weird night and i just want this week to be over. im supposed to hang out with heather on friday and joanna will be here on saturday.


The front says "Sheer Terror" on the left breast..and down one of the sleeves it says "You Never Sausage A Band"

owner- adam

why is it important to you?: Sheer Terror has always been one of my top 3 bands

where did you get it?: Mike Walters ( old bass player of Sheer Terror) gave it to me. We are old friends,saw he had it up on ebay for sale..contacted him..and he took it down before any bids hit it..and sent it to me.

any story you want to share about it? Have had the shirt for about 6 years,and still havent wore it.

sheer terror is one of my favorite bands, i was glad i could have a feature on this!

adam isnt in a band or anything, but sheer terror is playing a bunch of shows this year so check them out!

piggy shimmy

its a belly dancer pig

do i make the cut?

for almost a year now ive been diagnosed with alopecia, at first it was tolerable with a huge bald spot in the back of my head. now that it has progressed badly the part down the top center of my head is over 2 inches wide and wider is some spots, i have multiple patches throughout my head.
ive kept my long hair and i vowed that this wouldnt bring me down and i wouldnt cut it. i love my long hair and it took me so long to grow it out. its about 3/4 of the way down my back and i wish it would be longer.
in reality though its making the hair loss worse i think. with the longer hair it is getting a lot harder to hide the spots and some of the old awkward re growth and its weighing down on the sensitive patches.
im at such a loss of what to do, my wig should be coming in the mail soon so at least i have that to look forward to. wearing that i might not have the urge to cry anymore when im looking at myself in the mirror.
maybe if i cut my hair i wont cry whenever i take a shower and a huge amount of hair falls out.
maybe cutting my hair wont solve anything. i just dont know.
i think trying to pretend it doesnt bother me to most people is the hardest part and only a few people know how much it kills me.

i dont really have anybody to talk about this with and can actually relate so im venting to the place where i know the least amount of people will read it and probably notice.

i havent been able to think clearly lately. ive been on edge waiting for the blood test results to be called to me to see if i have RA or lupus. ive been in so much joint pain lately i cant think straight.
i feel like people just think im a wimp or how much i complain about my pain. i should probably just stop because most people dont understand. i sat in the shower for almost an hour today once i got out of work to see if it could just make me feel good enough to go to belly dancing tonight. i should actually be leaving right now, but instead im in bed crying while writing this. i think im going to still try to go and just be late. i missed last weeks class because i was in too much pain.

what can i do to escape all this? you may think having a hobby would help, but it sucks when everything i do to try to escape my life causes me more pain and makes the problem worse.
i dont even want to think what is going to happen with myself if my test results come back for something positive even though knowing whats wrong with me will be nice. i just dont think im ready to deal with a life long problem on top of the ones i already deal with.
can i please just win the lottery so i can be living in a nice place with little piggies that will love me no matter how much of my hair falls out.

challenge x5 bed time.

life of agony UGLY shirt.

well im sitting in bed now. here are pictures from the nights adventure

i picked up mike after i kind of awoke from my anxiety coma and we heading to harvard sq for this show:

it was hot and fairly smelly per usual and i was getting tired quick because it was just not my day.

after we left the show me and mike got burritos at felipes! its my favorite burrito place. they have my favorite refried beans and if i choose to get chicken they have the kind i like that doesnt look gross. i got cheese, but i shouldnt have. its always a serious decision i have to make when getting a burrito.

my loveliest matt finally gave me the cookies hes had for me. i was so excited, hes the best!

lemon chalet girl scout cookies are the best kind ever!!! i wish we had them in this part of the country. DAMN MASSACHUSETTS.

after felipes i dropped mike off and headed home.

why is that plate so small?!

this week: i finally found the oomph to sit and write.
monday i went bowling with my boss and 2 people i work with, it feels great to beat the crap out of them since i cant flip everyone off in real life. winning bowling will have to do.
tuesdays i have bellydance so that consumes my night
wednesday me and mike got burritos and jarritos at annas, his strawberry had more points than my pineapple... what the heck!?

thursday i was kind of out of it and my joints hurt a lot so i watched ncis all night

last night me and harry went to charlies and the movies in harvard sq. WELL... we order our food from an odd waiter with some space age note pad thing. harry gets his salad and....

it is served on the smallest plate ive ever seen!!!! how are you really supposed to even eat off that (i guess being allergic to it saved me from that one)
we eat our food and head to the movies and we saw No Strings Attached with natalie portman and ashton kutcher. it was pretty funny at times, but painfully hard to watch at others. regardless i had a good time that night. what night isnt good when youre with a great person, movie theater snacks, and cheeseburgers.
note: there was a guys night out group behind us...

this picture is also missing my sweater, jacket, scarf , and boots. it was so cold out last night!!! stupid winter in massachusetts

its now saturday morning and i somehow found the energy and care to do some laundry!

this show is happening tonight:

escape from stoughton

last night me and harry went to monster golf its a glow in the dark mini golf place. its so awesome!

i won 64 to 69, but it was no easy task. we also played a car game and some air hockey.
we went to dougs work(boston tea stop), but he wasnt there. we got some funny ice cream things, i guess they are called mochi. it was like ice cream trapped inside of a huge jelly bean, the orange one was my favorite.

it was a fun night!

today im going to get food with stef and garvey!

pink floyd coasters i got for christmas last year!
